Do I need to change my lancet every time I prick my finger?

Yes! It’s best to change your lancet (tiny needle that pokes your finger) each time you check your blood glucose to prevent pain, infection, and scar tissue. The lancet is a small, thin needle and starts to fray, bend, and hold on to bacteria even after one poke!
